I was just listening to Jerry doing Wonderful World (11-9-91, Hampton Coliseum, Pure Jerry 7) and thinking how wonderful it would have been to have heard Jerry and Louis Armstrong perform together. Anyone have any other GD member team up they'd like to have heard?

Jerry, Phil, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock. Too many to list, man what a great topic! Imagine, instead of Dylan and the Dead, Willie Nelson. I could also see Booker T. on keys, that would be amazing

I'm with you on this, often wanted to hear Jerry and Booker T. together - sweet and soulful.

I was lucky to see some of those dates on that E.C run . What a completely different feel from a GD show of those times . JGB was joyful and fun . WaWW is magic . Imagine going off into the night after that one . Too bad you had to move to the Bay Area to see them regularly .

I would like to see Bill Evans work with Jerry & Phil circa '75 , as a touring trio . Evans beautiful lush tones allowing Garcia to float or fly over Evans landscapes , while Lesh follows Garcia , playing off him or as foundation .

Yes , that would have been great . I would have taken a little adjusting/learning on our boys part, and some openness on Bill's part .
Non electric Chick, or Herbie , or even ( assuming you could tame his ego ) Keith Jarrett might have been an easier fit, but as long as this is fantasy, Evans would have been awesome !

I would have loved hearing Jerry & Bob sitting in with Willie Nelson and his band.
On a more fantasy level I would have loved to hear Jerry, Django Reinhardt, and violinist St├ęphane Grappelli play together. Gypsy music... maybe even have Dawg Grisman join along to play some mandolin! Would have been a nice fit. Funny thing though, Jerry and Django were both missing the same finger! Jerry admired Django Reinhardt.

Jerry and Bill Frisell would be my top choice, others . . .

Jerry and Bill Kreutzmann with Gabor Szabo and Ron Carter

Pigpen and Jerry with Eddy 'Cleanhead' Vinson and Willie Dixon with Sam Lay

Jerry, Pigpen and Keith with Dan Penn, Solomon Burke and Olu Dara

Grateful Dead line up from Fall '71 through Fall '74 with Tracy Nelson instead of Donna Jean

Wow. You have great imagination. I haven't thought of Gabor Szabo in 30 years. I'd pay to see those shows. And I would have settled for Maria Muldaur. :)

I actually got mine at least for a year and a half. Hornsby/Dead. Was fans of both prior and when Brent passed everyone was asking me if they'd team up. Until it was announced I didn't think so because of Hornsby's schedule and the fact the Dead needed someone to sing high-harmony. Glad I got him for as long as I did.

Also, Pat Metheny teaming with anyone always piques my interest.

Well that was really something of a dream come true. I think Hornsby is a hugely talented musician, and comes across as a really nice guy too. He really could spark Jerry back to life.
I love this Eyes from 91. There are times when Hornsby looks like a kid at Christmas who can hardly believe what he found under the tree.

Hornsby as a "a kid at Christmas who can't believe what he's found under the tree." LOL what a great description / visual!

I, too, really enjoyed Hornsby's contributions & really enjoyed listening to his piano . . . brought back a little of Keith to the mix. However, didn't enjoy his accordion playing too much . . . Great video, though, really brought back some memories . . .

Just the other day I was thinking about how tiring it got & how much we used to bitch about hearing certain songs over & over, Half-step, Me & My Uncle, Not Fade, U.S. Blues, etc., & then the thought occurred to me, "how much would I pay to see Jerry play those songs now??"

bob marley and the wailers joined by jerry on guitar and vocals, and herbie hancock on clavinet, rhodes, and arp 2600. with king tubby at the boards.

jerry on guitar (wolf), chick corea and keith jarrett on piano/rhodes, dave holland on bass, jack dejohnette on drums, wayne shorter on soprano. 1974.

dolly parton on vocals and rhythm guitar, jerry on pedal steel, electric and acoustic guitar, banjo, and vocals, mark o'conner on fiddle, mandolin, and acoustic guitar, with lesh and kreutzman as the rhythm section. maybe chuck leavell too.

I particularly like your second line up. It's really an embarrassment of riches - just a trio of Garcia, Holland and Dejohnette would have been astounding.

I like your Jerry/Satchmo combination - I've thought for a long time that Jerry's phrasing on guitar is similar to Armstrong's on trumpet.

To add some authenticity I would have liked to hear Pigpen sing with some of the British 'Blues boom' acts of the 60s - Fleetwood Mac, Chicken Shack, Yardbirds, even the early Stones. It would have given them a rougher edge.

OK I figure I will catch Hell for this one, but I heard rumors after Jerry's death that The Grateful Dead and Jimmy Buffett were planning to tour together in '96. Now what kind of party would you get mixing Deadheads and Parrotheads?

I woulda been there in a tie-dyed shark fin.

Those are two of the worst Donna replacement recommendations I have ever heard. I assume Yoko is a joke, but Natalie Merchant? Decent voice, I guess, but she shows almost no emotion. Everything is delivered in the flattest tone possible. Zzzzzzz.

Sorry. I loved Joni Mitchell. Saw her numerous times from twanging the dulcimer the Troubadour by herself to the Mingus stuff in Marconi Aud. She didn't have five rock'n'roll genes in her whole body. And as far 'Me and My Uncle', well......she sure was cute.

To be honest I was thinking more of Garcia and Lesh playing Joni songs rather than Joni singing the Dead stuff. I think that could have worked out pretty nicely.

Agree absolutely, JG crooning with Joni would be sublime. His guitar on Hejira would have been even more magical.
